I am riding a 26mm easton carbon bar currently. No issues, stiff as i need it.

Getting ready to build my new rides. is there any real benefit to going to a larger diameter bar? And is this the new standard with the 26mm going bye bye in a few years?

Also any thoughts on the new "form fitting" bars vs regular round bars? I got the easton for the shape of the top which gives a slightly different hand position out wide. Guessing the form fit bars take this to a new level.
